Recently stopped off here for one night on the way to the ferry to Northern Ireland. stayed in a double room, with a cot for our baby. Very nice room indeed with great bathroom and nice cot for the wee one. Very comfy bed. Great room service. Very friendly staff. Very well priced. Only regret was that we didn't upgrade... More

my son had his wedding at smiths hotel in Greta green and quite a nice venue but charging £5 for a bottle of cider and £3.80 for soda and lime left a sour taste in me mouth to say the least .A know weddings are 1 off occasion and you expect to pay a little more for food and drink... More

Thanks appa69, understand your feelings. Our liquor prices are pretty much standard to be honest, not withstanding the cheap pub chain brands, but for a 4star hotel and indeed any decent bar/bistro of quality we're on par I'd say, certainly for the premium ciders. We sell Rekordelig for £5 (this must be what you had), magners bottle is 4.50, strongbow... More

We had our wedding meal and night at Smiths a couple of years ago, it was a wonderful experience, especially the penthouse room WOW!! anyway we had always said we would like to go back and had planned a Easter road trip that would give us that excuse, and so booked a balcony room ( we couldn't quite run to...

Great to read of returning guests , thank you Yorkshire Merrits, I'm so pleased that the experience was so pleasant - so often returning to places with such fond memories can seem a little bit of a let down. What a shame the Penthouse wasn't available for upgrade that day, hopefully next time - let the girls on reception know... More

Stayed overnight for a wedding on Saturday April 19 on a B & B basis in a deluxe double room which cost £145. Staff pleasant and friendly and the room was clean enough, nicely decorated with a comfy bed and brilliant power shower but I've stayed in similar hotels for a fraction of that price. For some strange reason there... More

We recently stayed at Smiths Hotel when we renewed our wedding vows at the The Blacksmiths Shop. Smiths organised the day perfectly for us! Carly was our very efficient planner and couldn't have been more helpful - everything ran very smoothly on the day! We stayed in the Rose Suite which was very comfortable and well appointed. The restaurant couldn't... More

We stayed at Smiths on our wedding night on Friday 11th April 2014. We arrived early and were delighted to be able to access our room early to get ready for our wedding at The Blacksmiths Shop opposite. The room was fab and there were rose petals all over the bed when we arrived - very sweet! The bar area... More

The hotel room was absolutely lovely - very clean and with good decor. The meal we had in the bar was top notch - the best we've had for some time. Thoroughly recommend this hotel and will be staying again when we are next in Scotland.

We stayed in the Bensmoor Suites, situated directly opposite the Famous Blacksmiths Shop in Gretna. We were upgraded to the priviae cottages as part of our wedding package. We travelled with our little boy of 3 and the additional space that the cottage provided was a god send!! Check in was easy, the cottage was available before the stated check... More

A nit comb found on sofa in our suite and empty champagne on balcony aren't the ideal things to find however food was excellent, the atmosphere was excellent, the hotel in general was beautiful, majority of staff were very welcoming and helpful, had breakfast delivered to our room it wasn't hot but was edible and the quality was excellent

We spent a night at Smiths Hotel to celebrate our anniversary and overall, it was a fantastic experience. The room was lovely, comfy and I loved the decor. Staff were friendly and the cocktails were amazing. Breakfast was 5 star, huge selection to choose from and very tasty. I cannot wait for our next stay at Smiths.
